Otere Black plays as a first five-eight for Manawatu in the Mitre 10 Cup, Blues in Super Rugby Aotearoa and Maori All Blacks and someone I had the opportunity to play at the end of my playing days.

Otere is currently leading the top of the table Blues around the park as the starting first five-eighth and has been a standout this season. Just like Otere, this episode was classy and here's what we cover:

  • How Otere learns from Dan Carter and how this has allowed him to view the game
  • Leading the Blues in the COVID pre-season against Beauden Barrett
  • Otere's game process and how he handles game driving of the Blues team
  • His process around goal-kicking off of the Wolf + and how his kicking has evolved over time

This episode was insightful as I got to really dig deep on the details and learn from Otere and what's influencing his success at the Blues this season. If you're a Kiwi this episode is a special one for you and if you're from anywhere else in the world - you'll hear from how some of the best players in the world do what they do. Get some pen, paper and get ready to learn from this episode with Otere Black.
